by JH, Survival Blog:
I’ve been following many survival blogs and prepper sites for some time. I realize that what I am posing in this piece will be received by some as controversial or possibly taboo, but in order to get a balanced view of things, many viewpoints must be examined. That being said, I will inform the readers that I have been in law enforcement for twenty-five years, and I am able to speak from what I’ve experienced on this side of things. There are a number of plausible scenarios that could entail the imposition of martial law, gun confiscation, and suspension of habeas corpus or a range of actions in between that may come to pass. Let’s start with a little background.
First, I will admit that approximately ten years ago or so, the law enforcement community began to embrace a more “militaristic” outlook on their general job tasks. It started slowly, when I noticed at various conferences that vendors were moving to provide “tactical” equipment as a small percentage of sales. Today, these same vendors are primarily involved in ‘tactical” equipment almost solely.
